For the past three years, I, Aida Lugo McAllister, have been invited to attend the Valparaiso International World Cultural Festival to sell my cookbooks that is held during the month of September. On March 30, 2016, I was elected President of the National Conference of Puerto Rican Women (NACOPRW – Indiana Chapter) and was able to obtain a booth at this event for our non-profit organization to recruit new members and provide the public with information (brochures) about this great organization. We also sponsored the Orquesta Cuatro de Fenix to play our national instrument of Puerto Rico known as “el cuatro” – which functions as a guitar but with a shape similar to that of the violin. There was a reporter from the Post-Tribune that asked me several questions. Several days later, I was informed by a member of NACOPRW that Aida’s Cookbook and NACOPRW were featured in the Post-Tribune.
